UN official criticises Lebanese rocket attack at Israel

Beirut, Dec 30: Commander of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) General Paolo Serra has described the firing of two rockets from Lebanon towards Israel as a very serious incident aimed at undermining the stability in the region, Xinhua reported.

Two Grad type 107 mm missiles fired from Lebanon towards Israel missed their target and exploded on Lebanese territory Sunday.

The rockets were launched from the Arkoub area in the vicinity of the Kfarshouba village, but landed on a farm on Lebanese side of border with Israel, causing material damages, a security source said.

The Israeli army retaliated by firing over 20 shells at the rocket launched area.
